Similar to the previous installments in the franchise, there are a number of materials that you must farm to craft and upgrade the best weapons and gear in Diablo 4
Most of these materials can be farmed by simply playing the game to kill enemies, loot chests, complete quests, and such. The rare ones, though, require you to complete certain high-level activities.
Something important to note here is that while you are going to never need to go out of your way for most materials, there are some that are exclusive to certain regions. Hence, below you are going to find a complete list of all crafting and upgrading materials in Diablo 4 and how to get them.
How to get all types of materials in Diablo 4
There are five categories of materials in Diablo 4 where each category has a number of different crafting and upgrade materials. Some of them are specific to your late-game or tied to your level scaling, so you need to know exactly where and how to farm all of these materials.
Herbs and Plants
You are always going to come across plants growing on the side of the road or bushes in Diablo 4. These herbs are important crafting materials that you need to make consumables.
Take all of your herbs and plants to an Alchemist to see what kind of potions and elixirs you can make or improve.
